Landlord's Guide to Replacing Carpet & Flooring


About Alan Fletcher


Alan has a unique and rare insight about the carpet and flooring business. If you listen to what he has to say, you stand to save a lot of time and money on your next carpet or flooring purchase!


At the age of 11, Alan was working a few hours each Saturday at his father's carpet and flooring showroom to make a few bucks. Little did he know at the time that this was the beginning of his long career in the carpet and flooring business.


Alan’s Father was a carpet mill rep for Berven Carpets of California for over 35 years. Alan's uncle George owned and operated a carpet store in Eugene Oregon for over 40 years. Alan's older brother and aunt also had a minor career in the carpet and flooring business. At the nightly dinner table and at most every family gathering, the main topic of conversation was about the carpet and flooring business.


Alan was hired as a flooring apprentice in 1977 at age 18, and trained up by three master craftsmen to install vinyl, carpet, ceramic tile and hardwood floors. The store owners, Dave and Ethan knew Alan's father and hired Alan as a favor. (Thank You Dad!)


After about five years of training, sadly the company he was working for went out of business due to the downturn in the 1982 economy and Alan was forced to go out on his own. 


Times were hard and business was slow for quite some time. But over the next two decades Alan continued to increase his experience and product knowledge by selling and installing floorcovering of all types in every type of application including custom homes, apartments and commercial buildings, and even in cars and motor homes! It was a tough road to hoe!


In the meantime, Alan raised two sons, both of which he trained up in the carpet and flooring business. Both of his sons have been able to earn a good living and are well respected carpet and flooring professionals. So, Alan's carpet and flooring legacy lives on! 


Alan is now retired, but has has personally sold and installed carpet and flooring products of virtually every type in virtually every possible application. Alan continues to learn and provide free information and advice to homeowners and landlords nationwide.


Alan has made it his mission in life to study the inherent characteristics and construction attributes of all grades and types of carpet and flooring materials to better understand and determine and predict product quality, durability, proper application, maintenance and overall product values. 




In 1998, Alan wrote his first 28-page booklet designed to help educate homeowners about how to choose new carpet wisely. In 2000, he developed his website known as AbcCarpets.com, a free consumer-friendly website providing unbiased carpet buying articles, money-saving information and sound carpet buying advice for savvy homeowners. 


Alan retired in 2006 and no longer sells or installs any carpet or flooring products, however he still keeps up with the latest carpet and flooring trends and continues to help educate and inform homeowners free of charge through his websites and blogs.


Alan has recently developed several new and updated carpet and flooring websites and blogs now available to landlords and homeowners free of charge.
